SkidMarks Show host Jeff Allen plans to work on the restoration and customization of a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro at the Classic Auto Show scheduled for March 2-4 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, with a goal of generating funds for Ronald McDonald House Central Valley.
The build will be an interactive project with Allen inviting enthusiasts to provide recommendations on parts, paint and overall design. This can be done by voting online at the Project Car Webpage and The Classic Auto Show on Facebook or Instagram.
Upon completion, the Camaro will embark on a nationwide tour with the Ronald McDonald House Central Valley, where people can purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win the car. Ticket also can be purchased online or at the show.
“Our fans asked for a project car, and that’s what we’re giving them,” said Michael Carlucci, senior vice president at Clarion UX, the show’s producer. “Jeff, his team at Flat 12 Gallery and all our sponsors are working around the clock to finish this car in time. Having the opportunity to document and interact with the build and our fans along the way has only increased curiosity about the finished product.”
This 1967 Camaro project car was made possible by the 2018 Project Car Sponsors:
- Paint Sponsor: AkzoNobel
- Parts Sponsor: Classic Industries

“When we build this baby back up, it’s going to be one mean machine,” Allen said. “I didn’t want it to just be another good-looking Camaro, I wanted it to be an awesome driver as well. That’s why I teamed up with some of the industry’s biggest names to pull off this build in record time.”
